World Bicycle Relief has a second model. The first model was a nice heavy-duty bicycle but apparently there were a few problems with quality from the manufacturer in India. I am not sure if these are from a new factory but they sure are a new model. The design seems to have a more mountain bike feel to it. Here is a pic of the old Superbike model:
The Superbike looks pretty slick here. Somehow I doubt that the intended users of the Superbike will have spare tires for the Zipp rims that this bike is sporting. When I first rode one of these at SRAM Chicago, it was before Zipp was acquired by SRAM so it is possible that a special wheel was added to Zipp’s lineup so they could add their logo to the bicycle (it was a raffle prize in this case).
From the World Bicycle Relief’s newsletter:
90,000 bikes worth of experience and five years of field-testing have led to World Bicycle Relief’s new Buffalo Bicycle models. These machines bring a new level of quality, durability and function never before seen in their class. Stay tuned for more on our new bicycle designs and how they take the Power of Bicycles to the next level.
